“As the donations and fundraising efforts accumulate, the Tweetsie Trail keeps getting better and better.
The monthly Rails-to-Trails Task Force meeting resulted with big news from a local businessman and members, including word from Snyder Signs’ President Rod Snyder that his company would be making a donation valued at $23,500 by building an entrance sign to the trail that starts just off Alabama Street.
“Our company discussed a fitting way to have a correct entrance to such an asset for Johnson City,” Snyder announced Tuesday night. “We felt this was a great thing for Synder Signs to be involved with to give back to the community.”
The entrance would have brick foundations on each side, which would hold the names of other donors to the project, as well as be spanned by a steel trestle structure that would read “Tweetsie Trail,” and mark the beginning of the 10-mile recreational trail between Johnson City and Elizabethton. It would be located just past a parking lot section made by Public Works Director Phil Pindzola’s crew, which has been working on the trail since before the start of the New Year.
Task Force Chairman Dr. Dan Schumaier said the entrance will be an elegant entrance to the trail, and joked he could picture people taking selfies in front of the sign.”
Snyder Signs, Inc. is proud to have been the sign company of choice for the exterior and interior signage at Coba Cocina Restaurant, Lexington, KY.
“From the food to the architecture to the unique concept, Coba Cocina is certainly a distinct Lexington restaurant, and a dream years in the making for the project’s founders, father-and-son Phil and Lee Greer of Greer Companies, a local hospitality and real estate development company headquartered in Lexington whose portfolio also includes 35 Cheddar’s restaurants in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, West Virginia and North Carolina. The restaurant is actually three separate, but complementary, concepts: Cocoh! Confectioner, a bakery, cafe and gelateria; Cobar Cantina, an upstairs lounge with a specific small pate (tapas) menu; and Coba Cocina, the intricately decorated downstairs restaurant with seating for nearly 230 people (the entire building can sit upwards of 400 people).”

Snyder Signs wins first place in the Electronic Monument Sign 2011 Signs Of The Times Electric Sign Contest. The winning sign was custom designed and fabricated for the Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge Airport and Tennessee Museum of Aviation.
“Although the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge airport is in a populous area near Sevierville, TN, few people know it exists, according to Snyder’s operations manager, Randy Holland. Snyder Signs used a scale model of a Lear jet to build the 11-ft.-long replica using CNC-routed HDU, which it subsequently coated in fiberglass. The design team used Autodesk’s 3DS Max dimensional software. The aluminum letters are backlit with LEDs, and locally quarried stone was used to fabricate the base.”
